- I am mundane and magical, Silly and serious. I am an underachiever who suspects that someday in the eternities I may yet blossom and even fruit. I am a collector of spirits and essences, a studier of mood and nuance.I have many many faults and yet I've always been loved. I am a good friend, but I will let you go if you so desire. I believe in Somewhen. I laugh easily and cannot often cry, which I know is a Flaw. Like You, I am a work in progess.

Yesterday was my first juicing day. I had 2 glasses of juice and while I felt food cravings I wasn't hungry. The juice I made first consisted of an apple, a lemon (peel on) ginger, kale, celery, spinach. I think that was all. It didn't taste as bad as I feared it might but I can't say I look forward to it yet. The second one was small. Strawberries and blueberries and red Swiss chard. I am about to make my third. there are things to know about juicing and I don;t know them yet. But I have leapt in with both feet and i will learn. Right now as long as vegetables outweigh fruit I am calling it good. But certain combinations are better for you than others.
So far, besides feeling really tired (but oddly at the same time energized) I haven't had any adverse reactions. The detoxifying period can be bad I've heard. Glad that so far it has not been for me but this is early on. I am hoping to reset my palate, to make changes permanently toward a vegetable and fruit based diet. To incorporate exercise so that I can do some of the things i would like to. Like ride horses and do yoga and swim. It's all a big experiment for now. Most people wouldn't do a 60 day juice fast. But I am going to try then I will need to do smaller fasts periodically. I think it will be well worth it.
